Cambridge United sign Johnny Hunt from Wrexham

11 June 2014

Cambridge United have signed versatile defender Johnny Hunt from Wrexham on a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old, who can play at left-back or in midfield, began his career in the Dragons youth team before going on to make almost 100 senior appearances, scoring 13 goals.

"I'm delighted to have joined Cambridge United," Hunt told the club's official website.

"I'm really excited about the new season and can't wait to play in League Two."

The Liverpool-born utility player becomes United's fourth signing behind Chris Dunn, Robbie Simpson and Luke Chadwick.

"We're really pleased to have been able to agree compensation with Wrexham and complete this signing," said Cambridge director of football Jez George.

"Johnny is a very good footballer. He's a versatile, left-footed player, with bags of energy and ability, who will add real competition in three positions.

"Johnny's goalscoring record last season was outstanding and he will add real quality to our squad.

"We have signed one of the best young players in the Conference and we look forward to him developing further through the philosophy and coaching environment that underpins our football operation."
